Not being able to choose from available energy providers can be painful. Our family lived in Maryland before moving to Florida. We had a home with a basement and a second story, so it was hard to keep the house cool in the heat of summer and warm in the icy winter. Our electric bill was pretty hefty back then, and it got worse a couple of years after we bought that house, when our electric company went through deregulation. I won't get into the nuts and bolts of what that meant, because it was really complicated and I'm still not sure I understand it, however, it left us with an electric bill that almost doubled. At one point I remember our bill being over $700! It's pretty bad when that happens and you have no choice in the matter.
Fortunately, many people now do have a choice of who they get their energy from. In fact, in the little town I moved from, there are 11 choices. And you thought the only deals were for Christmas shopping! It’s the season of savings and everyone is surfing the internet to find the hottest deals. I bet you never thought that you could save big by shopping energy providers!
There is a lot that goes into powering up your home. Distributors own and manage the wires, towers, and other infrastructure that carry the energy to you. The high voltage lines carry actually do the carrying, and substations convert the electricity. Finding how much you can save with Choose Energy is not nearly as complicated. Head over to ChooseEnergy.com, type in your zip code, and find an energy solution that fits your budget from the best suppliers out there – you can save up to 25 percent just by switching to one of their energy providers. Best of all, they will make the switch for you.
I think this is a pretty awesome concept. When suppliers can reduce the cost of marketing their programs by offering it through Choose Energy, they can pass those savings on to you. Suppliers can even see how their costs are performing compared to other companies. Competition is a good thing!
